Hi There!!
Aron Barreira Bordin here,
Welcome!

About

Hey!!

My name is Aron Bordin and I’m Brazilian Computer Science Student and AI researcher. I’m studying Computer Science at São Paulo State University, and always coding something fun on my free-time :)

I’ve been testing new tools, documenting it, and contributing to open source communities. I can tell you that there are a lot of perfect tools, but unfortunately they still not well documented or people just don’t even know about it. :(

Currently, my main focus and new passion is Machine Learning :D

I’m doing some researches about Deep Learning, Machine Learning, NLP, and related fields. (I post about it on my external blogs).

Background

(TL;DR)

This is an overview on what I have done so far; and my plans for the near future :)

My first programming experience ? When I was 13 or 14, I was little sad, it was not possible to turn my Xbox Controller off when using it on Windows. I contacted support and some forums, the only solution: “You must to remove the batteries to turn it off”. (?!) I didn’t want to remove it…

My first coding experience

I friend of mine that was studying Computer Science told me once: “With programming, you can do anything”. So, why not try to learn some programming language to turn my controller off?? I downloaded VS, and had my first experiences with C++ :) In the first week, I was able to read button values from my controller, and then it becomes very exciting. After some days, I finished my first app. A GUI application to turn off the controller. The application starts with the Windows and runs on background, and then with a long press on Xbox logo, Booom! A windowed app will appear, asking if I want to turn the controller off :)

I just loved it. It was an amazing experience for me. Some simple English verbs… controlling a wireless controller…

My childhood dream: make an amazing game!

I had spent major part of my childhood playing games, and had always loved the idea to create my own.

After my first experience with programming, I tried to use some game engines and code some games. Actually I developed some basic ones, using sprites and sounds from the web. But when I had an idea, I always got stuck: I was not a designer :(

Computer Programming - Officially

On 2012 I started a technical course about computer programming. I have always been a quite proactive; learning by myself; studying a lot of languages, a lot of tools and techniques; and then loving it more and more.

On 2013 I got my first internship. I worked with Phonegap, PHP websites/products, Python scripts, and some automation scripts at Triata. This was an amazing experience for me. I worked there for 18 months :)

OW! Computer Science!

On 2015, I started to study Computer Science at São Paulo State University. Currently I’m developing some extra curricular projects with the University, it’s a perfect way to learn cool and different topics. Right now I’m developing researches about non-linear Programming and its applications in Machine Learning, multi intelligent agents and its applications to simulations, and studying a lot of Neural Networks !

I’m in the second year and I’m sure that I’ll continue developing more amazing projects and researches during the course.

Google Summer of Code !?

For me, 2015 was one of the best years. In my first University semester I just got accepted in Google Summer of Code 2015 !! I have been using Kivy in some projects for a while, and then when I got the opportunity to learn more and contribute to a project that I love… Amazing !

I worked with Kivy Designer, a tool that makes cross platform and UI development with Python easier. I’m still working with Kivy Designer. I think that the perfect thing about GSoC is that it’s the perfect tool to help any student to get started with Open Source projects. After the summer, I was experienced enough to be able to maintain and continue developing this project.

Thank you Google :)

What is the next step?

Right now I’m focused on my studies and University. I’d love to be a great Data Scientist in the near future, so I’m focusing in ML, Deep Learning, Probability, NLP and related fields right now.

Best of luck for me :)
